Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting

Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting on a chocolate cupcake

This creamy peanut butter frosting is the perfect silky frosting to top any cake or cupcake. I have this unwritten rule at my house..NO Canned Frosting!! I can doctor up a boxed cake mix to be delectable but that frosting in a can , it is beyond help. This is one of my favorite frostings, and I have tinkered around with proportions for years. This recipe is the perfect texture for piping , it is not too thick or too thin. This is the frosting I used on the Nutter Butter Football Cupcakes and it is perfect with chocolate cupcakes. Just some another suggestion is this is great on a banana cake also.

There is nothing more classic than chocolate and peanut butter together. This is the perfect frosting to top a chocolate cake or cupcake .  Don’t stop there this could go with so many other cakes. This would be a perfect compliant to a tender banana cake or even a peanut butter cake.
